Welcome to the website of The Memphis Church. We in The Memphis Church have close relationships with each other that go far beyond our weekly worship services (Romans 12:9-10). As part of God’s worldwide, spiritual family (Ephesians 2:19-22), we reflect our city’s diverse makeup. We strive to encourage and love one another daily (Hebrews 3:12-13). We worship the one, true, awesome God of the Bible (Deuteronomy 10:17). The sole authority (2 Timothy 3:16-17) in our lives is the Bible, God’s perfect, inspired Word (2 Samuel 22:31, 2 Peter 1:20-21).

Our God is the one, all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving God (Isaiah 40:1-31, 1 John 4:8) of the Bible. He created all things (Psalm 148:1-14) and has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17, Luke 11:13) to His creation. Abounding in grace and mercy (Ephesians 2:1-7), God calls us to account by how closely we live according to His Word (Romans 2:5-11).

Our purpose in life is to love God wholeheartedly (Matthew 22:37-38). Everyone who claims to be a Christian must strive to love and follow God as Jesus did (1 John 2:3-6). Though we fall short in our sincere effort to follow Jesus at times, we are thankful that we are immersed in God’s forgiving grace and love (1 John 1:5-10). This grace and love was supremely demonstrated to us by Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross (Acts 2:22-24). It is this grace that so motivates us to take up our cross daily and follow Jesus (Luke 9:23).

Our mission to seek and save the lost was clearly given to us by Jesus in His Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). Like our Savior, we desire to reach as many as possible with the gospel. We help people become disciples of Christ by teaching them to follow the Bible. The Bible teaches us the concept of discipleship, in which we help each other to love God, to love others and to grow spiritually (Matthew 12:48-50, John 13:1-17).

We believe that the church has a responsibility to help meet the physical needs of the poor and the hurting. Hence, we strive to meet these needs through the giving of our time, money and, most importantly, our heart to others (Mark 1:40-42, Matthew 25:31-46).
